Asterisk@Home is a compilation of Asterisk and various open source add-on’s – the ISO version even includes a self-configuring Linux distro called CentOS (whitebox RedHat Enterprise Linux v3). Net result it provides a relatively easy turnkey Asterisk installation - very good for beginners. Granted it comes at the risk of a sometimes buggy experience, however it is very easy and generally pretty stable/useful.

Asterisk is the powerful base system everything else is built upon.
